I like to look at churches, and have some familiarity with St. Augustine and the Flagler legacy, but I was a bit disappointed. Perhaps it's because I've been meaning to go here for years and the built-up expectation just couldn't be met. There is one small window they believe to be by Tiffany, but because there is no proof, they... More

Must see while visiting.... No charge unless you want to make a small donation. Beautiful church and the stain glass windows are unbelievable. Flagler's mausoleum was here as well which was quiet interesting..Great Experience...

While the exterior of the church is lovely, the interior is even more beautiful, and the stained glass windows are magnificent. They are done in mostly angular pieces in bold, bright colors, very unlike the usual ones. The docent was kind and very patient with all my questions. Since it's a church, there is no admission fee, but it seems... More

We enjoyed going into the church, sitting and listening to the organ being played. A very beautiful church, different from most catholic churches in the way the pews are situated. Worth going to visit.

The architecture and interior detail is fascinating as well as the how the church came to be built. It's well worth the getting off the trolley to walk through. The church only asks for a $1 donation per person. Should not miss it.

This church was built in 1889 by Henry Flagler, who is buried here along with his family in the attached mausoleum. The building was built by the same man who built the near by Villa Zorayda using similar techniques of poured concrete with use of coquina stone, used for many other buildings attached to Flagler in St. Augustine. I'm sure... More

Built for his daughter, this church, although small, is amazing. I loved the fact that on each stained glass window, there was a line from the Apostle's Creed. One window for each line.

Looking from the outside and the inside the architecture is amazing. Beautiful stain glass in every window. It's beautiful inside but I'm not use to the seating arrangement. Maybe because I am a Catholic. Saint Augustine being Catholic is a big issue that time. Nice place to visit.

Henry Flagler and some of his family are in a mausoleum in a rotunda in the church sanctuary. Amazing to see how much money was spent on this church as a tribute to the daughter he lost. Very beautiful stained glass windows and organs. There was a $1 charge, however it was well worth spending to see the splendor of... More
